Established in 1906, the YWCA Pierce County has devoted over a century to creating opportunity and safety for adults and children in the greater Tacoma community. After opening Washington State's first emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence in 1976, the YWCA became a forerunner in the domestic violence service provision field. As an inclusionary non-profit organization, the YWCA Pierce County provides assistance to survivors of domestic violence and their children. All survivors are welcome regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity or expression, religion, or sexual orientation. Bilingual staff and interpretation services eliminate language barriers and ease transitions for all of our clients. The YWCA serves over 15,000 adults and children annually, who are seeking help due to domestic violence.
